It's want opinions on a return pump. It's for a 75gallon reef tank, and it's between a mag drive 9.5 or a Quiet One 3000

Any experiences and opinions? Thanks!!

Running a 9.5 mag on my 90g and really like it. Will be getting another mag 9 for my new 60g cube.

I just like them, quiet, at least to me and so far reliable.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have a mag 9.5 on my 125. It's really quiet which i like. To be honest, I wish I had bought a mag 7. The mag 9.5 has too much flow for my sump. I've had to tune it down with a ball valve to slow it down. My octo skimmer has worked a lot more efficiently with less flow.

I have a 40g breeder. I'm a huge fan of low flow on a return pump, and more circulation pumps in the DT when using an in-sump skimmer.

I will have an in sump skimmer. I think a bubble magus. I think the 7 it is. It was between the two.

So now it's the 7 or the Quiet One 3000

Moved to General Hardware and equipment discussion.

I have never used the Quiet one but am a very happy customer of Mag drive pumps. I have a mag 9.5 and a mag 12 in my sump and love them.
